Frequently Asked Questions


What is a virtual permit?

A virtual permit is purchased online and replaces a paper permit. No permit is required to be displayed within the vehicle as our Enforcement Officers can check your details on their handheld machines.  The virtual permit provides much greater protection against fraud and should eliminate misuse.  As there is no physical permit, your permit cannot be lost or stolen.


Does my vehicle registration need to be accurate when using the system?

Yes. It is very important to make sure that when using the MiPermit system, that you register your vehicle accurately. This includes using a Zero when appropriate rather than the letter 'O' and vice-versa. Any errors made when logging your vehicle registration mark with us could result in a Parking Charge Notice being issued as our Enforcement Officers may not be able to validate your virtual permit.


What happens if I change my vehicle?

If you change your vehicle you must login to your account and update the vehicle registration linked to your permit; the change will be activated immediately. Alternatively you can call the MiPermit helpline on 0345 520 7007
